Ancestors and Descendants  is a paperback anthology of original fiction and poetry.  The theme of the collection is prequels and sequels to the works of HP Lovecraft or stories inspired by him.

That includes  prequels to Rats in the Walls and Pickman's Model, plus events following the Case of Charles Dexter Ward and the Hounds of Tindalos. Are there still people lost in the Walls of Eryx?

At last, you will learn what happened to the White Polypus Thing from The Call of Cthulhu and of the increasing influence of Nyarlathotep, the Crawling Chaos.

From the very birth of our universe until its  final, inevitable collapse, Ancestors and Descendants fills the spaces in-between the classic tales.

As well as copies of the final paperback we shall also be releasing as reward T-shirts and prints featuring the final exclusive front cover artwork, currently being finalised by our in-house artist. Rewards also include a thank you acknowledgement in the book, plus the chance to be featured in one of the stories!

Projected contributors so far include Ian Delacroix, Miguel Fliguer, Dickon Springate, Russell Smeaton, Frank Coffman, Tony Bradbury, Chris Halliday,Eckhard Hülshoff, John A DeLaughter, Glynn Owen Barrass, Mark Jenkins and more. Edited by Robert Poyton, founder of Innsmouth Gold and author of Innsmouth Echoes and The Dunwich Trilogy.

Risks and challenges

Innsmouth Gold have published seven successful books to date, all totally developed in-house. This time, we thought it would be interesting to get some outside authors involved and have been pleased to get such a good response from the Lovecraftian community.

Design, artwork, etc remain in-house, so our primary costs are reimbursing our contributors plus set up and print costs.

We hope you can contribute to this project, which we plan to be the first of many new collaborations between Lovecraft enthusiasts!
